Some mini wind chimes for the teachers
Since our second grade teachers (both our regular teacher and our long term/maternity leave substitute teacher) were so ecstatic with our class art auction wind chime.....we thought they would each love to have their own mini version for Teacher Appreciation Week at school.
Ms. H talked to S & R about enjoying her garden so we also gave her an Oriental Poppy for her garden (one of my FAVORITE garden plants) and of course our requisite bag of homemade biscotti.
Didn't I tell you that those little dessert molds would come in handy as bases for our wind chimes?
Then by the end of the week, S & R's teacher had come back off of maternity leave. We didn't want to forget her so she got her own wind chime too!
The kids do such a good job with the beads and picking out the right utensils for each wind chime. And of course, I cannot rave enough about Ross' knot tying abilities. Hmmmm...I'm not sure what I did this time around....
Darn, these mini wind chimes are even more addicting. I now have people scouring the garage sales for all kinds of unique utensil and silverware and cutlery for us. It's quite possible that we are getting to be known as the junk family.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
